MugRug Exchange

We're having our annual End of the Year Celebration Dinner at our Guild tonight and we're doing a mugrug/coaster exchange. I forgot all about it until Sunday afternoon!!! EEEK!!!

So I went searching on the internet for a fun and easy mugrug pattern. Yes, I could have designed my own, but, I have so many things going on I decided to go find one. And I did just that. I found this really cute tutorial at Terri's blog-SEWFANTASTIC!! You can find the tutorial here :^)

 And sew it begins!
Easy piecey!
All rows done and ready to sew together!
All sewn
White borders added.
Quilted. some of my lines are not straight, but who's looking!?? :^)
Trimmed again.
Binding done and mugrug finished!! I sewed it on the back and machine stitched it to the front to save time and since it should be used a lot, it will be more durable in the wash.
With the extra time, I decided to make a couple coasters for the lucky new owner!
Ta da!! Done with time to spare. I even made a batch of brownies this morning while sewing. The brownies are for our dessert. We have about a dozen members bringing pot luck desserts. The food is being catered by our local Italian restaurant. Vegetarian Lasagna, Salad, Breadsticks=Yummy meal and fabulous company!!

Take care friends, Happy Quilting, and keep those scissors sharp!! Martha
